Figure 5: Histopathological view of colonic section of EPEC-induced diarrhea rat colon on treatment with ethanolic extract of Eriosema chinense and bioactive chloroform fraction from ethanolic extract of Eriosema chinense (×10, Scale Bar 100 μm). (a) Normal control rat colon, (b) enteropathogenic Escherichia coli-induced diarrheal control rat colon, (c) enteropathogenic Escherichia coli-induced diarrheal rat colon treated with ethanolic extract of Eriosema chinense (200 mg/kg, p.o.), (d) enteropathogenic Escherichia coli-induced diarrheal rat colon treated with chloroform fraction from ethanolic extract of Eriosema chinense (100 mg/kg, p.o.), (e) enteropathogenic Escherichia coli-induced diarrheal rat colon treated with norfloxacin (5.7 mg/kg, p.o.) and EPEC: Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (Arrow in the figure indicates localized destruction of colonic cell including microvilli)
